Jockey Robby Albarado said, "I had a perfect trip and when we kicked for home he gave me some run. He ran real hard and just couldn't get past the leaders. He felt good, Steve does a great job of getting this horse ready but he just couldn't get it done today. He may have needed a rest today but he'll bounce back and be fine."

Trainer Steve Asmussen added, "He ran third. We're going to have to figure out why he ran third. He ran the worst race of his career and we'll have to find out why."
